Reasons to Give

‌Did you know?

  • By making a donation you can be shaping the University’s evolution to excellence. At the same time, your gift has an immediate effect on today’s students.
  • Without donations universities would have to shut down at the beginning of April due to a lack of funds from tuition alone.   
  • 9 out of every 10 SHU students receive some sort of financial aid. The University awards over $47.9 million of its own funds to SHU students.
  • Give back to the University that has given so much to you.
  • A gift of any amount can impact the life of a student and help them achieve their dreams.

Give because you can choose! Support the area of the SHU Community that is the most meaningful to you. 100% of your gift to SHU goes directly to the allocation of your choice.
